CTC and PCMH-Kids programs recognize the importance of clinician (and care team) well-being. We continue to work with the Primary Care Physician Advisory Committee of the RI Department of Health and other stakeholders to help develop solutions which will improve provider well-being. Burnout, stress, and work overload have become a pervasive problem among health care providers in the United States. This is our third year of administering the clinical well-being survey based on the American Medical Association STEPS Forward program which is aimed at increasing professional satisfaction and improving practice efficiency. Using this survey in 2018 and 2019, we had a very good response and would like to follow-up to see how primary care clinicians in Rhode Island are doing now, even if you didn't participate in previous years.
Please answer the survey questions as truthfully as possible (due February 14th) to determine your workplace stress levels and how they measure up against others in your field. Additionally, please encourage all primary care providers (MD, DO, NP, PA) within your practice to also complete the quick survey. It will take approximately 3 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. Results will be compiled and reviewed at the March 13th Breakfast of Champions which will be focused on clinician and care team well-being.
